Six months in…
AUTUMN TERM 2015 Are we already in July? Half the year has
gone by so quickly. We have had six of our busiest months ever here at the R&S headquarters.
For my part, I have already done three trips to Abu Dhabi since January! The programme in the Middle East is going from strength
to strength which means more time needs
to be invested over there. We have started
an exciting twinning programme between our UK and Abu Dhabi schools. If this is something your school is interested in getting involved with, then please let us know.
As for the UK, some more exciting developments. We have a new Chairman, Philippe van den Abeele from Belgium who will be leading JGI UK into a new
era. We also recently published our new brochure with the endorsement of actor Colin Firth, our R&S ambassador. This can now be downloaded from our website.
In August we will have our annual R&S summit at Windsor Castle so watch this space for more news.
As I get ready to attend the Observer Ethical awards prize giving event tomorrow night where some of our schools have been shortlisted, I reflect on how far we have come from those early days when we just had a handful of students and indeed the idea was just being explored on a verandah far away in Tanzania.
What a legacy we are creating…..
